BP launches eco awards

BP has launched the BP Car and Van Fleet Fuel Efficiency Awards, which aims to recognise businesses who are actively trying to reduce their fuel consumption and emissions.

The awards are open to all managers of car and van fleets across the UK and will take into consideration business mileage, the use of fuel monitoring systems, vehicle selection lists and environmental initiatives like carbon offsetting, tyre management programmes and car sharing schemes.

The winning company, along with one highly recommended organisation, will be given the opportunity to send some of their drivers on a fuel efficiency driver training course called Ecolution, courtesy of IAM Commercial.

Results from Ecolution trials show that for an average fleet of around 3,000 drivers, companies could see an annual fuel bill reduction of more than £300,000, along with carbon dioxide savings of up to 3,000 tonnes per year.

Ranjeev Baines, BP’s fuel card manager, said: “There are a lot of efforts being made by organisations to implement initiatives to reduce the impact they have on the environment. The BP Car and Van Fleet Fuel Efficiency Awards is our way of recognising and rewarding those organisations that have taken that extra step to reduce the impact of their fleets on the environment.”
